When Esraa El-Taweel Cried in court

On Monday, Photographer Esraa El-Taweel made headlines when she appeared in front of the judge who extended her temporary detention for 45 days.

The 23-years old student burst into tears in front of the judge, in front of the lawyers and in front of the cameras that captured her most vulnerable moments while crying for her own freedom.

Esraa El-Taweel was forcibly disappeared along her two friends Omar and Sohip in early June and then resurfaced after three weeks later in two different cases.
El-Taweel is accused of belonging to a banned group and sending false news abroad to defame the Egyptian government as well disturbing the society’s peace !!

The photos of Esraa crying in court went viral online gathering all Pro-Jan25 supporters who defended her and demanding her release.
Her hashtag “Esraa_El-Taweel” in Arabic has been a top twitter hashtag in Egypt for nearly a day.
Of course, the Pro-Sisi supporters launched two counter hashtags showing off their hatred and lies while calling Esraa names.
They claimed that she was an admin of a Pro-MB group that spread the addresses of officers in order to harm them  despite officially Esraa is accused of another specific charges
They were acting like the old social media trolls committees of NDP and Muslim Brotherhood as well the infamous Russian social media trolls.
They also showed a bunch of her old tweets from her twitter account to show that she was inciting violence against the state.
Intentionally, they did not notice that they took her old tweets in 2011 Mohamed Mahmoud clashes as well her old tweets against police brutality during Morsi’s rule in 2012 and 2013 as an evidence for violence incitement !!!
Ironically , they did not take screen shots for her tweets mocking ousted MB president Mohamed Morsi !!
Mourning her friend Asmaa El-Beltagy who was killed in the Rabaa sit-in dispersal massacre and calling what happened on 3 July 2013 as a coup on her twitter account were considered an evidence of her treason on Pro-Sisi twitter accounts that demanded her extreme punishment !!
Her twitter account is closed now.
Esraa El-Taweel , that young girl who loves life and ladybirds seemed at the first instance to be broken by those who locked her up but actually her tears actually incriminate them. She is not weak but rather a human , unlike her jailers.
Still her tears broke the ice somehow.
For the first time since her arrest, several Pro-regime TV hosts spoke about her case including Amr Adeeb, Lamis El-Hadidy and Eman El-Hossary.

I am puzzled, but at least more people now know about her case.
Here photos also appeared on Tuesday’s newspapers Front pages in newspapers like Al-Akhbar and Al-Shorouk.
